Once upon a time there lived and skied a man named by Reinis ...
36 years ago was established his track No. 13, that people named by Reina track.

Reinis, in his real name Zigurds Reinhards, was born in 1925. As a Sigulda High School physical education teacher, all his life he was active supporter of sport life of Sigulda and of  Latvia.

In 1977 students of  Riga High School No.1 and  students of  Sigulda High School No.1(including the current track owner Olavs Legzdiņš), leading by Reinis started to build the track in owergrown river side of Vikmeste.

By the time when all other tracks were closed type, this was a place where dominated democracy, unique spirit of  Reinis and active lifestyle. There was only one law– each had to learn to ski or at least had to try. This law is still in force today, as a special democratic atmosphere.
More than ten years Zigurd Reinhard leaded and organised famous Krimulda – Reina mountain skiing cup. As a law, in Reina track were held the last matches, frequently in the middle of April, because of the north river side you could do skiing, even if in other places flowers bloomed.
